    Default Password not recogonized

    I upgraded from 1.53 to 1.55a everything went well. When I try to log in at www.mydomain.com/zc_install and update my database it says I have the wrong password. So I went and removed zc_install with filezilla . I then went to my site with my old password and got in. I changed my password. so I went back, put zc_install back in..i went to my login / update database area , and it still says i am using the wrong password. any ideas?

    Your frontend is not showing the message that your DB needs upgrading

    So check your configure.php files for the correct DB being used
    Use phpmyadmin and check the admin table for user name

    I did not want you to seek the pass as it is encrypted just to see if the user name you are using was there

    And as far as configure.php, verify that the same database information in both includes/configure.php is the same as the database information in admin/includes/configure.php. That includes the database as well as the DB_PREFIX and all other aspects of constants that begin with DB_

    I thank you for pointing me in the correct direction.
    The password was causing more issues so I enlisted the help from Host Gator. It took a bit of working, but all is well.

    Thank you Kobra for you help.
